Now that all of the 13 preseason all-section or all-area teams from around the state are complete, we’ve gone through all of them and have chosen preseason all-state teams. This is the 32nd year of doing at least one preseason all-state team. This time, we’ve done three. You’ll need a Gold Club membership to see all of the writeups on every player, but this list of the three teams is free. Good luck to all for the upcoming season, which starts on Friday of this week for most.
